Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4 is to include something on the concertina in Irish music - some time in the next 40 minutes.

It's the tradition of women playing anglos, a rehash I think, of the piece Woman's Hour did a few weeks ago.

Well - there you have it, Irish men: bored? lonely? want a female companion? Buy a concertina and get out there into the sessions - which, according to the players on Women's Hour, are mainly with female players.

(Just off to ressurrect my Anglo and catch the boat from Holyhead...)

At the beginning of October I was across in Ireland and there were more young women concertina players than I could shake a stick at. And all playing expensive Jeffries as far as I could see. I tried my "Is that a Jeffries or are you pleased to see me" approach but it fell on stony ground. Not sure why - I may have to re-visit that one.

And I would have taken up the concertina had I been twenty years younger.

Oh! alright then - 40 years younger.

PS It is quicker to fly.

Dave, if you were shaking your stick at them it's no wonder they weren't too keen.
